Drawing on his 16-year experience promoting local artists, Pais emphasised the vital role of creative endeavours in fostering balance and peace through poetry, art, music, and culture.

He elaborated on the construction and planning of traditional structures, emphasising the importance of artisans’ happiness in the process.

On November 24, Architect Sindhushree shed light on the "Kattes of Mangaluru," emphasising their significance as local landmarks. She shared ongoing documentation efforts, covering approximately 130 kattes, revealing the objectives and methodology of the study.

The final day, November 25, featured Subhas Chandra Basu presenting "The Ruin: The Raipur Zamindar Bari," offering detailed architectural documentation with historical context. Being of Bengali origin, he elaborated on his personal involvement in this project as it is located in West Bengal. The partially restored site’s adaptive reuse proposal was also unveiled, connecting the Zamindar family’s history to the inception of Shantiniketan as an international centre of education.
